This short computer animation is an experimental progression of abstract textures and colors created using an interactive process of "artificial evolution." The artist and computer collaborate to produce images and movements that neither could easily produce alone. The computer generates and displays a collection of experimental abstract images. The artist chooses the most aesthetically interesting images, and those survive and are "bred" to produce a new collection of images. The equations, or artificial genes, of the survivors are copied, mutated, and mated by the computer to generate new offspring pictures. This process of variation and selection is repeated, and with each cycle more complex and interesting results can occur. Finally, movements are created by performing "genetic interpolations" between these evolved images. The final animation you see here contains a series of these interpolations applied to various sets of evolved images.

Evolution is fake as science will soon find out.
But still, nice animation and colors/effects.
Very artistic, and a good organic representation of evolution. I could imagine staring at this in an art museum.
Subject: It's alive!!!
Pretty good, very organic animation. Short, but good.

Subject: This is a neat looking video
Ignore the less evolved superstitious folks.
Nice example of intelligent design.
One star for trying to push it off as an example of evolution.
